Hi all so I got two more computers up and running Wattos linux and have the linux boinc that I got from synaptic Package Manager.

Since I don't like changing the monitor, keyboard and mouse around I thought I would get them connected to BS right quick.

I went in and put my ip  into remote_host.cfg

and then put a password in gui_rpc_auth.cfg there was nothing in there to start with.

Then I restarted the computer and the boinc-client said disconnected in the bottom right until I undid the change.

It is happening on both computers.

Any help would be great and thanks in advance,

Dave

1) and then put a password in gui_rpc_auth.cfg there was nothing in there to start with.
2) Then I restarted the computer and the boinc-client said disconnected in the bottom right until I undid the change.
1) Strange, did you look for another gui_rpc_auth.cfg file.
2) You mean the BoincManager couldn't connect anymore.

You need to restart the client or even better the computer when you change gui_rpc_auth.cfg
